American Airlines has started selling tickets on its new flights to Morocco starting next June. Low intro fares to Casablanca (CMN) are available from nearly everywhere in the U.S. starting from $611 roundtrip.
Intro Fare Sale on New American Airlines Flights to Casablanca
The new nonstop service will depart from Philadelphia (PHL) at 9:30 pm ET, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, starting June 4, 2020. The flight will return from Casablanca (CMN) the following day (Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays) and will arrive back in Philly at 3:45 pm ET.
This schedule allows for easy connections from just about anywhere American flies on the outbound flight. Since the return flight gets back later in the afternoon, connections to some cities in the U.S. may require an overnight layover. Intro fares are cheap from pretty much everywhere in the U.S. compared to normal pricing for this busy travel period.
New service begins on June 4, 2020. The cheapest fares are available for travel to Morocco on Mondays, returning from Morocco on a Tuesday or Friday. A one-week minimum stay is required for the low fares.
This sale is unadvertised, and fares may jump at any moment. Book now to avoid missing out. Try many different booking sites if you are finding prices jumping since inventory is going fast and may be available through another booking engine. And sign up for fare alerts to find out about the next big deal.
These are Basic Economy fares, which only include a carry-on bag plus one personal item. Other restrictions apply. The first checked piece of luggage will cost $60 each way, but if you need to check a bag it's better to just purchase a Main Cabin Economy fare. In most cases, it is the same price for an upgrade to a Main Cabin Economy fare, which includes one free checked bag.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may be able to pay a fee to choose a seat.
Upgrading to Main Cabin Economy will cost an additional $120 roundtrip in most cases. This type of fare includes one free checked bag, seat selection, and the ticket will be eligible for upgrades. American allows ticket changes (fee applies) on both Basic Economy and Main Cabin Economy fares for transatlantic flights.
From some larger cities, you'll find lower fares for fall/winter travel on other carriers. However, you might find a more desirable schedule on the new American flights and peak travel in late June rarely sees deals like this so it might be best to book early.
As an example, I found a flight departing Minneapolis MSP on Monday, June 15, returning from Casablanca CMN on Tuesday, June 23, for $640 roundtrip.
